  • Lucy Barton is recovering slowly from what should have been a simple operation. Her mother, to whom she hasn’t spoken for many years, comes to see her. Gentle gossip about people from Lucy’s childhood in Amgash, Illinois, seems to reconnect them, but just below the surface lie the tension and longing that have informed every aspect of Lucy’s life: her escape from her troubled family, her desire to become a writer, her marriage, her love for her two daughters. Knitting this powerful narrative together is the brilliant storytelling voice of Lucy herself: keenly observant, deeply human, and truly unforgettable.

    Hi Sarah, i will be at the book club but sadly can't make the after meal as I have to be on pick up duty later on. Just heard from Clare that she too won't be able to make meal but she's coming for the book. See you Monday

    In the spirit of Christmas a few of us were thinking about having a shorter book discussion for the December Meet Up and then going off to a local restaurant for a bite to eat at about 8.30. If you'd like to join us please do, ideally if you can let me know by leaving a post then I can adjust the booking accordingly (assuming I can find a restaurant to accommodate us at this late stage!) Let the festivities commence....
